Leading Cloud Services Provider, ANS Group has been awarded a place on 4 Lots of the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Technology Services 2 (RM3804) framework. This latest success will enable ANS to provide its suite of Public and Private Cloud Services to the public sector to support every step of the IT transformation journey.
The previous iteration of the framework, which expired in May 2017 was introduced to encourage and support public sector organisations in sourcing specialist IT services from a wider pool of suppliers.
The new version aims to build on the progress made, whilst also helping public sector organisations save £180m over the course of four years by making it easier and more efficient for them to procure IT services.
ANS were awarded a place on Lot 1: Technology Strategy and Service Design, Lot 2: Transition Transformation and Lot 3: Operational Services and Lot 4(a) – Programmes and Large Projects.
Speaking of the award, ANS’ CEO, Paul Shannon commented,
“We’re delighted to have secured all 4 Lots on the framework and this is testament to the incredible job our team of experts deliver on a daily basis to the public sector. We have over 20 years’ experience working with the public sector across large scale and complex IT infrastructure and cloud based projects and we welcome the opportunity to build on this expertise, ensuring IT becomes a true strategic asset for those within central and local government.”
